Apeture blades were sluggish and some grime inside the lense, so I disassembled it and cleaned it out. CLA throughout the body and this thing is woking like a champ now! Not too bad for $10 and a Tuesday afternoon. And yes, I am going to leave it all dirty on the outside.


I found one in a dumpster a few years ago. It was painted in a camouflage pattern with acrylics, had a Soligor 350/ 5.6 lens, and was mounted on one of those shoulder stock thingys.
Ammonia removed the paint, the stock went back into the same dumpster, and as a bonus, the lens is a T-mount so I can use it on the Pentax H1a I picked up a few months ago. The Soligor lens is surprisingly good.
